We look forward to going out and playing our best basketball against Lawton Ike on Thursday night.”
Norman North and Edmond North will play at 8 p.m. following the game between the Broncos and Eisenhower.
The winners of each game will play in the regional championship game at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Norman North.
